The Fuze Play 'Zubi Flyer' Lets Kids Build, Hack, and Play

By Michael Hemsworth

Parents are looking for fun, educational ways for their children to play more than ever, which is something the Fuze Play 'Zubi Flyer' toy kits put front and center. Created by Kristy Sevy and Kyle Muir, the Fuze Play 'Zubi Flyer' works by having kids build the item themselves using the included components. It's then time for coding as kids hack the device to be suitable for a variety of games and uses.

Microcontroller Specs 

The Zubi Flyer is the bomb dot com for makers: 5 PWM pins, 12 DIOs as well as hardware serial connections Rx and Tx. Running at 16MHz and 5V. The onboard switch-mode boost regulator is designed to operate on 3 Volts.  Power can be supplied from a 3 Volt CR123A battery or from a USB cable that provides regulated +5 Volts DC to the board. Do not run any power exceeding 5 Volts as the regulator cannot handle step-down voltage.
